A residential development has been proposed and a development application is currently underway for the property immediately to the south of 70 High Park Avenue.

The proposal would remove the two (2) two blocks of townhouses (one of which is adjacent to High Park Avenue and the other, Quebec Avenue) at the current address for 51 - 77 Quebec Avenue and 40 - 66 High Park Avenue. In their place would be constructed two (2) new 31-storey residential apartment buildings and a two-storey amenity building. The two existing residential apartment towers would remain.

Residents who are interested in learning more about the development should visit (and regularly check) the following websites, in addition to joining the 70 High Park Ave email list:
